h2g2 Post February 2024 Writing Challenge: The Unbearable Whiteness of Snow
The weather tried to freeze him,
It tried its level best,
At a hundred degrees below zero
He buttoned up his vest.
'The Frozen Logger'
Snow: many of us have seen too much of it in the last weeks. Some people have never experienced it. What is your relationship to snow?
- Do you have early memories of snow? What images does the White Stuff evoke for you?
- Do you have any exciting/funny/nostalgic anecdotes of a snow-related variety?
- Do you know any urban legends/folktales/songs about snow?
- Do you love/hate/have a love-hate relationship with snow? Tell us about it.
- Have you journeyed anywhere for a snow experience? To get away from snow?
- If you have never seen snow, what are your associations with it?
- Can you write a science fiction story/poem/song/essay about snow?
That's it: that's the theme. Go to work. It beats shovelling the driveway for the 42nd time this year.
